CenteringPregnancy® with the Stony Brook Midwives


CenteringPregnancy® is prenatal care that includes an individual heath check-up with additional time and attention in a group setting. You'll meet with your healthcare provider and other woman who are due near the same time for 10 sessions during your pregnancy. CenteringPregnancy® is a way for you to share learning and experiences with other pregnant women and to be involved in your own care. 

You will:

  • Learn more about pregnancy 
  • Be better prepared for birth
  • Be better prepared to care for your baby
  • Participate more in your healthcare
  • Have more time with your provider

Each group visit lasts about 2 hours with your healthcare provider leading the session. Scheduling in advance makes planning for work and childcare easier. 

Proven Results

  • 96-97% of women surveyed prefer receiving their prenatal care in a group
  • 33% less likely to have a preterm baby
  • High breastfeeding rates
